Posted by: Tie - 04-21-2019, 03:13 PM - Forum: Computer Building and Buying - Replies (1)

Hello Brian can you please look at these components and recommend or state anything differently I should use. The PC Shop is going to BUild it for $99.

I prefer i7. Budget contraints is an issue, Prices are AUD=Australian. $1AUD is .53 English Pound.

I will/maybe play the Latest Battlefield or Battlefield 1. I will at least once a month run a VMware Lab of Server 12 - Exchange and a client Win 10. Or other Server set-ups. I have chosen 32GB RAM.

I did watch your Video editing PC Budget Build from a week ago and got ideas.

Everyone is saying to buy i7 not AMD.

Here is a comparison in Prices of total build:----# AMD $2221.00

----# Intel $2383.

The budget can afford the i7 build.

I will buy this by 22.5.19.

Samsung MZ-V7S500BW 970 EVO Plus 500 GB Solid State Drive $172
EVGA SupaNOVA G1+ 750W 80PLUS GOLD Power Supply $172
Corsair CX750M 750W 80PLUS Bronze Semi-Modular Power Supply $139
Corsair 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 Vengeance LPX Ryzen Black C16 2400MHz - $339AUD
WD Blue WD10EZEX 3.5" 1TB 64MB 7200RPM HDD $59
(I have a QNAP NAS I dont need much HDD)eVGA GeForce GTX1660 XC Gaming 6GB GDDR5 (06G-P4-1163-KR) $379.00AUD

Intel Core i7 8700K 3.7GHz Coffee Lake 6 Core 12 Thread LGA1151-CL - No HSF retail box - (BX80684178700K) $619AUD
:which CPU should I get

  How do I use VBScript to open CMD and cd into another directory?
Posted by: system32 - 04-17-2019, 05:07 AM - Forum: Programming - No Replies


Not entirely sure that this would be possible without a macro, but i'm trying to make a VBScript that will open CMD, which is easy to do but the tricky part for me is how to get the VBScript to cd into another directory. I am trying to cd into a directory to run a Python script because i'm learning about Python and also trying to get better at VBScript too.

If there is anybody who knows how to do this, please let me know, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you for taking the time to read  Smile

Sad Windows 7 Windows Security Center will not turn on - need urgent help
Posted by: Polsky - 04-16-2019, 02:41 PM - Forum: Software Repairs and Troubleshooting - Replies (2)

Please help me..
I have a laptop running Windows 7 Pro
It had a fault with its original HD so did a HD Clone

I then carried out a windows repair and update which seemed to go through without any problem...

However, when I use the Windows Repair disc it says Windows 7 Pro (recovered) - this is my first question as to why this is now appearing.

The other issue is that Windows Security Center will not turn on.

(I have run various Malware programs and none seem to locate anything out of the ordinary) yet when I run sfc /scannow it runs the scan and then returns with... sfc found problems but was unable to repair these

Please help me

Exclamation [RESOLVED] Windows 10 Freezes 7 - 13 minutes after startup
Posted by: PlumbingFan - 04-14-2019, 12:56 AM - Forum: Windows 10 - Replies (3)

[I resolved this issue, but if anyone is having a sinaler problem, feel free to read this and its comments/reply's]

I’ve been having this problem starting today, when i startup my PC, it starts up fine, i can use it, but after about 7 - 13 minutes, it COMPLETELY LOCKS UP, I can not move my mouse, keyboard, audio stops, my only option is to hard restart. Ive not installed any programs recently.

I've tried:
-Looking around and changing a few power options. That did nothing.
-Ctrl+Alt+Delete That did nothing
-running chkdsk (i canceled because i was afraid it would freeze in the middle of it)

64x architecture
250 GB harddrive (i don’t know the brand)
12 GB Ram
AMD Phenom II X4 810 at 2.61 GHZ (processor)
amd radeon 4800 (graphics card)
Asus motherboard (i forgot type)
(I don’t remember rest)
Mouse: Logitec Ergonomic mouse
Keyboard: (unknown)


Edit: From my knowledge i think my harddrive is dying

Question How do I gain root access on my computer?
Posted by: system32 - 04-13-2019, 03:00 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

OS: Windows 10

Hello, it's been a while!

I would like to start this thread by saying that I am unsure of whether or not this is a subject considered "risky" or just shouldn't be looked into for legal reasons. If it is, then please feel free to let me know and/or lock the thread.

For the past day or so, I have been doing research into how I can gain access to not only specific files and folders on my computer, but everything, even the files or folders that would normally deny access, system level stuff. I am basically looking to gain the same level of access that the OS itself has, or Microsoft. I want to gain this level of access for two reasons, one is that I am currently building my own gaming PC and I would like to be able to tweak it how I want it. The second reason is that I often have this weird problem where the computer will deny me access to save to a folder that I should normally be able to save to. I have looked further into this problem by looking at videos on YouTube but to no avail. I know that opening the command prompt and typing wmic does give the user root access, but it is only temporary access. I am not 100% sure on this, but it also seems risky because the OS could possibly have safeguards in place to stop this.

If anybody is able to give me any tips about gaining this level of access, or tips about the ever annoying save permission problem I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you for reading! Smile

And here it is!

  Hard Drive Problems
Posted by: RobCharles1981 - 04-11-2019, 10:16 PM - Forum: Hardware Repairs and Troubleshooting - Replies (1)

So I've got a docking station https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B018EOZGU2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
In order to back up data onto separate drives.

And I have a new backup drive a 6TB Western Digital Green and I'm attempting to move data across to this drive. The first occasion I ran into a problem where for some or known reason it "became corrupt" and I ran the chkdsk J: /f /r /x command where after some 8 hours it fixed the problem and I was able to access the drive.

But I'm running into problems here, in event viewer I'm getting an error log Log Name: The IO operation at logical block address 0x3e0315d8 for Disk 7 (PDO name: \Device\0000008a) was retried.

Any ideas on how to fix this please?
